Trivia

The original score, composed and performed by James Brown & Fred Wesley, has been erased from all current versions of the film in the US. In its place is a poorly constructed temp score featuring source music from other 1973 era American International films such as "Coffy." See more »

Goofs

It was made known that Slaughter is being pursued because he killed some gangsters in Mexico. In the previous film Slaughter chased them into South America. See more »

Quotes

Crowder: [Slaughter is about to leave] Is there anything I can do for you?... Give you a lift?
Slaughter: Yeah... Lock the place up when you leave.

Alternate Versions

Watch Slaughter slaughter

Here's another another golden oldie, a well made feature film, blaxploitation tale, with some thrilling action, especially the start, with the fake orange and reddy gore. We too, have hot broads, as well as the big black dude you don't mess with, as referenced by other black dudes: The one and only Jim Brown (Fireball in The Running Man) who makes most men look small. We have great villains, of course of being the eternal Don Stroud, plus a surprising well acted, and genuinely authentic performance by Ed Mcmahon. Some people want Slaughter dead, where he must of crossed some really bad guys, half the fun in the story, that has us, wondering if he'll survive, which we probably know he will. Recognize a voice and face right at the start. Sounds and looks like a very familiar Police Academy regular. How Slaughter survives a drowning, with his car catapulting off a towering cliff into the seas, had me flummoxed where his girl wasn't so lucky. If you like the attributes of what I've just mentioned, and you're a serious 70's action fan, this will make your night.
